Montreal: Mark Webber took advantage of late drying conditions to clock the fastest time for Red Bull in Saturday's delayed and truncated final free practice session for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix. The 36-year-old Australian was the last man out at the right time and lapped in one minute and 17.895 seconds to outpace Adrian Sutil of Force India by three-tenths of a second. Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes was third fastest ahead of Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, defending triple world champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull and sixth-placed Nico Rosberg in the second Mercedes. Paul Di Resta in the second Force India was seventh, Felipe Massa of Ferrari eighth and Jenson Button of McLaren ninth with Kimi Raikkonen 10th for Lotus. The final times were almost meaningless, however, because they were all produced in the closing four minutes of a session reduced to 30 minutes because of an earlier delay to repair barriers at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. In the drying, rapidly-improving conditions, it was clear that the times were tumbling after a spate of minor off-track excursions earlier when the circuit was more slippery.
